General description

Diglycolic acid is a toxic metabolite of diethylene glycol (DEG) responsible for DEG-induced proximal tubular necrosis.

Application

Diglycolic acid was used in the preparation of needle-like aragonite particles from calcium nitrate aqueous solutions.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Diglycolic acid has antithrombogenic properties and induces vasodilation. It inhibits succinate dehydrogenase activity in human proximal tubule cells.
